Identity Hoops International


Who we are.


About IHI

Identity Hoops International is a missions organization using basketball as a platform to change the world. By partnering with local churches and missionaries we engage, mentor, disciple, and equip one athlete at a time.

What we do:

  • International Tours

  • Stateside Tours

  • Player Development

  • Minister to Coaches

  • Ministry Partner Development

We do all of this by allowing leaders and influencers to experience God’s grace by trusting Him and others with their lives.

IHI teams consist of current and recently graduated college players competing against professional and collegiate teams. A college or professional coach is recruited for each tour as we understand the profound influence a coach can have on a young athlete’s life.

We understand how powerful and influential athletics are in our culture today. Basketball provides a medium and a platform to have influence in our emerging culture for the good news of Jesus Christ.

Our tours have both short term and long term impacts as we only go places where we can bless, boost and encourage a local church. Basketball naturally bridges a huge gap between local missionaries, leaders, and people of influence.

Your story matters, and IHI is a ministry all about discovering and entering into your subplot in God’s story. We create spaces for authentic relationships where God can capture the lives of young athletes and local leaders.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
— Galatians 2:20
